      to me, an average folk rock album

      Just who are McGuinness Flint? McGuinness Flint were formed in 1970 by Tom McGuinness (formerly of Manfred Mann) and Hughie Flint (formerly from John Mayall) along with songwriters Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle. They are best known for their folk rock hit 'When I'm Dead and Gone' which reached number 2 in the charts.

      Apart from the hit 'When I'm Dead and Gone' the album does serve up another couple of good songs in the form of 'Lazy Afternoon' and 'Bodang Buck'. Apart from those three songs the album is pretty rudimentary and mediocre. To be honest I was expecting a few more up-tempo songs, but the album only really serves up some folk-rock melodies.

      If you are a fan of folk-rock then you will certainly like this album, but saying that, if you like folk-rock you probably have this album already! I think fans of The Band and Bob Dylan would certainly like the album as you can hear elements of both of those acts clearly on this LP. I also suppose if you like the work of the band members previous work then you will also like to hear this album.

      To be honest, I wasn't overly impressed with McGuinness Flint's self titled debut, and I don't think I will bother with anything more from this group (even though they made three or four albums in total).

      I really haven't got that much more to say about this album, but if you want to listen then amazon.co.uk is selling the album for £18.90, but it might be worth getting 'The Capitol Years' for £5.23 which includes most of the best songs from this record.
